In terms of fake meat products (I'm a vegetarian), Boca italian sausage and bratwurst and Morningstar buffalo wings are favorites of mine.

Squash fries sound very interesting. Will definitely have to try those.

hummus is a greek spread which comes in many flavors such as 3 pepper, olive or garlic. It can be used on a lot of different things such as sandwiches, raw veggies, whole wheat crackers, baked with chicken.

It can be found (usually) with the speciality cheeses and meats. It is 50 calories per 2 tbps and it only takes 1 tbps to get enough to put on a sandwich.

Ahem if I may intervene the original hummus is a spreadable mash or dip made with cooked chickpeas, olive-oil, tahini, lemon-juice, garlic and salt. The flavoured ones you get are alternate versions of it. If you go to a Greek restaurant in Greece, you will unlikely find the olive and 3 pepper ones. I know, I am Greek!

Hummus is my new crack! LOL. I put a lot of paprika in mine.

I eat it with everything. I like to use cauliflower and raw mushrooms to dip in it. I like to bake some chicken and dip the chicken in the hummus instead of using bbq sauce or my old addiction..ketchup :/

Or use the hummus in a lettuce wrap with some lean chicken

The Weight Watchers ice cream sandwiches are really good. Also, sliced strawberries and blueberries with Fat Free cool whip.

Lol, I think the versions have a nice taste but for Greeks it is not really humus. I went to a supermarket one and my friends and I bought the humus and it had peppers in it! Lol, we were all "Umm this is not hummus". Ok, I think we were pretty hilarious in our reaction but imagine coming from a country where hummus is made in huge amounts to discover there are so many other versions of it.

Just a tip for those craving salty foods. I have learnt from experience as well as know that when craving something salty, try to go for something lower in sodium, like crackers - you can get low sodium, chips- low sodium, it will help to fight cravings later on, because it is said that once you grab something salty during your day, you are way more likely to keep going on salty snacks for the remainder of your day! So if you can, avoid salty foods, and if it is ultimitly your worst craving, plan for it once a week!!!

Oh and the best snack I found, is Cheecha Krackles potatoe snacks, they are air puffed chips that come in original, sea salt and pepper, and luscious lime... 74 calories and only 240mg of sodium for a 2 cup serving!!! OH and 0gr of fat! and they are actually awsome, dip them in salsa or hummus for a guilt free snack!! Also, Glenny's soy crisps, they come in lots of flavours and taste just like those fatty potato chips! I found these at a local bulk food store.
